ElectraStim Flick EM60-E Electro Stimulation Pack Review
Electrosex technology made its debut a good few years ago now. Yet, even as an avid toy collector I still hadn’t prioritised trying it until recently. Which, since it’s the buzz of new pleasures that fuels my sex toy obsession, was probably a mistake on my part. And now having had the opportunity to try the ElectraStim Flick EM60-E, I’m hooked. There is no denying the stimulation of electro sex toys is unlike any other. It’s a whole new world of pleasure, completely incomparable to vibrators and the like. And the stimulator is the basis of that new found sexual joy. Once you have that, you can dive headfirst into the fun of numerous attachments.
The ElectraStim Flick EM60-E is not a cheap toy. It’s an investment that needs to be made before you can enjoy electrosex. The packaging reflects the toys price though, with a sturdy black box worthy of keeping. I use it to store my ElectraStim Flick, as I’m sure was the intention. The stimulator comes complete with a storage pouch, charging cable, 4 conductive pads, connection wire with 2 pin connectors, instruction manual and a 1-year warranty (extendable to 3 years).
Before I dive into the review I just want to highlight some of the safety aspects, as the ElectraStim Flick EM60-E isn’t able to be used by everyone. I also want to note that it can not be used above the waist. So no nipple stimulation I’m afraid. Those it is unsuitable for include:
- Anyone who suffers from a heart condition
- Those fitted with an electronic medical device
- People who are pregnant
- Anyone with epilepsy
If you have any concerns regarding safety then have a read of this page on the ElectraStim website. If used correctly, it is perfectly safe and nothing but pleasurable.
The Stimulator itself is a handheld device. It is light and ergonomic, with simple button functions to navigate. There are LED lights to monitor the level of intensity and the pattern you’ve chosen. I was genuinely surprised and impressed by its simplicity. I was expecting to be overwhelmed by thick instruction manuals. But in fact, I was able to get it out and begin playing within minutes.
The two pin connectors are 2mm in size and connect with ease to the conductive pads. Both pins need to be connected to create a full circuit and allow the ElectraStim Flick to work. The conductive pads have a gel-like adhesive which is both incredibly sticky and painless to peel off the skin. They can also be cut to your desired size or shape as long as the wire is kept intact. Each pad is said to last for around 5 uses. In my experience, they do last longer though. It is also possible to buy replacements when they’ve lost their stick. However, I will probably purchase new attachments instead.
Charging the ElectraStim Flick EM60-E is incredibly simple. The USB cable slots into the base of the device and I simply plugged it into a USB adapter. There is an indicator on the device to show when it is charging; by flashing with a red LED light. This light will turn off when it is fully charged. The device does last for up to 6 hours with a full charge, so mine hasn’t needed recharging yet. I’m one of those people who let their toys die completely before I bother to recharge them. A habit I really must break.
The ElectraStim Flick EM60-E has a whopping 24 levels of intensity. Ranging from a mild flicker to very extreme sensations. I have found the best way to use it is to work my way up slowly. If you push yourself too soon the sensations can become uncomfortable or even painful. The intensity can be increased and decreased using the plus and minus buttons. If you do reach a level of discomfort then you can switch off the device immediately using the power button.
There are also 6 patterns to choose from including pulsating and wave patterns. I’m a sucker for the pulsating patterns, they’re so good! The patterns are easy to scroll through using the middle button and they keep to the previously chosen intensity as you scroll through. I like to choose my favourite intensity on the constant mode and then scroll through to my desired pattern.
One of the features that make ElectraStim so special is their ‘Flick’ mode. With this, you can create your own patterns by shaking or flicking the device. Though I personally just tap the back of it with my finger and find that works perfectly too. The function is incredibly responsive and the patterns change in exact timing with your movements. This is a fantastic way to incorporate it into couples play.
It took some experimenting with placement to find the right area to have the conductive pads for me. I tried them on my thighs and then my mons pubis but they weren’t close enough to my genitals to really give an arousing sensation, though it was still pleasant. When I went on to place one on my perineum, between my vagina and anus, I hit gold. So, I added another; covering my vaginal opening and slightly going over my labia majora. I did have to ensure it wasn’t in contact with any labia minora, which may be worth bearing in mind if yours protrudes.
I gradually cranked up the intensity, finding after a while I became more used to the sensation and needed a stronger hit. One of the things I love most about electrosex is the way the stimulation travels. Despite the fact the electrodes were external, they almost echoed penetrative sensations. Especially when I used a pulsating pattern. It’s a much more encompassing experience to me than that of a vibrator since it has such an intensity and broad range of stimulation. It’s definitely worth considering for anyone who is unable to use penetrative toys.
It can’t do the impossible though, and as always I needed the addition of clitoral stimulation in order to reach orgasm. I was able to combine the use of the ElectraStim Flick EM60-E with a clit vibe as easily as I would with any other sex toy. The fact I could enjoy the sensations of the ElectraStim handsfree was a welcome change to my usual bullet and dildo juggling act.
Whilst I did choose to orgasm, and it was certainly a powerful and longlasting one, I don’t feel an orgasm is the main goal. The ElectraStim Flick EM60-E reminds me of the importance of the journey, rather than just the destination. Using the stimulator is pleasurable enough in itself and an orgasm only really puts an end to the fun. It has actually made me take a new approach to masturbation. Making it an experience for me, instead of a means to an end. I also can’t help noticing the benefit of this to those who are dealing with an inability to orgasm. Allowing them the freedom to enjoy sexual pleasure as it is, without the need or goal of orgasm.
Now I have tried electrosex, I know it will stay as a main feature in my sex life. I think the ElectraStim Flick EM60-E is a worthy investment, especially for anyone seeking a new type of pleasure in the bedroom. It is a quality product that delivers in a variety of ways. I do feel, however, the stimulator alone is probably not enough. I have the ElectraStim Noir Ovid Dildo which I can hook up to it and prefer substantially to the electrodes on their own. Fortunately, there are numerous choices of attachment and I highly recommend checking those out too.
I also have to add, though I haven’t had the chance to do so yet, this would be absolutely perfect for a medical fetish. Next time we do medically based roleplay, I will definitely be including the ElectraStim Flick EM60-E!
